À propos du cours

How can businesses and investors help fill the multi-trillion-dollar gap needed for sustainable development? Simply put: by incorporating sustainability and social impact factors on people and planet into management decisions. Through this course, anyone can learn to improve their organization's practice of impact measurement and management and align their ESG or impact activities and reporting with emerging global standards. Impact Measurement and Management for the SDGs is a collaboration between UNDP SDG Impact and the award-winning team at CASE at Duke University. The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is a steward of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that were launched in 2015 and to which 193 countries have signed up to achieve by 2030. The SDGs are a shared plan to end extreme poverty, reduce inequality, and protect the planet; they have become the world’s blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. But the public sector cannot meet those goals alone. Climate change, poverty, racial and gender equity, food, health, education, clean water − the list of challenges faced by people and planet is too long. Businesses and investors have stepped in to help. The course was designed around the fundamental elements of the SDG Impact Standards, the only management standards that embed sustainability at the core of an organization in the holistic way intended by the creators of the SDGs. The course demonstrates how the SDG Impact Standards help organizations align with responsible business principles, other standards, and best practices in impact management. In the course, you’ll learn to improve decision-making for positive impact on people and planet in line with the SDG Impact Standards and the Operating Principles for Impact Management. In the course, we have translated 4 universal practices of impact management into practical actions: SET STRATEGY, INTEGRATE, OPTIMIZE and REINFORCE. We teach the steps to implement these actions through short videos and lessons with concrete practical examples. Professionals who know how to apply these sustainable management standards are increasingly in demand by institutions globally as they work to improve their performance and reporting around ESG and impact management. If you work or wish to work within an enterprise, a corporation, a fund that manages assets or an asset owner or advisory that oversees investment assets, or if you just want to learn more about impact investing, ESG, social finance or corporate reporting, this course will help you master the core concepts and practices in impact management for the SDGs and other impacts from enterprise and investor perspectives. This course was written and is delivered by CASE Faculty Director Cathy Clark, and benefitted from extensive input from a larger team from UNDP, CASE, global academic advisors, and other experts.

T​his was an excellent course and provided me with a lot of information that I think will take me a while to fully internalise. It was well organized, well documented and supported by a wealth of references and resources. Small thing perhaps, but unlike other courses I've taken here, I was particularly pleased with the formatted transcripts attached to each video rather than the typical free formatted text files.

Seemed to me the material would apply nearly in toto, for business management in general, if one were to hypothetically set aside the SDG in the course's title.

The "decades of experience" that Prof. Clark refers to are tangibly present in the course material. If anything I would suggest that there is too much material for 1 course. There is enough material here to make it worthy of a 3 course or so specialization series.

A​gain, thank you. enjoyed it. Best wishes and Regards,

Though it is a holistic summarization of the Impact Management & Measurement methodology, it is academic guidance for those ready to become committed to a sustainable society and global environment as the role of a devoted entrepreneur or an intermediate consultant, or a dedicated SDG fund. I was fully satisfied whit what the CASE Team and the Lecturer presented in this course. Beyond the knowledge, a large stack of additions, tools, and technics was also provided for supporting us in a swifter start as principals of the Impact Management. Great job. I also encourage all that are interested in the fair game rules of a better and sustainable future to boldly submerse in the skills and knowledge of this course.

​Clear and current. Excellent course.

It would be great to have a follow up course for impact evaluators researchers and consultants, more focused on technical challenges of SDG related, benchmarking frameworks pertinent for survey design, data collection and analysis, reporting and impact communication, etc.

T​hank you, cheers from Lisbon

E​xcellent course with comprehensive aproach to measurement and management of inpacts of the SDGs. Very good presentation by Cathy Clark explaining and illustrating the material. The 5 weeks timeframe is a little short for absorption of the content and I deem necessary the same amount of time for an in depth review of topics.

As an fixed-income investment professional, I realized that Impact Measurement & Management for the SDGs is important since the world has changed a lot. No matter how much we accept the change, we should better prepare ourselves and equip these knowledge. Highly recommend institutional investors to take this course!

I was looking for information about ESG. This SDG course provided me with a good base of understanding originating from the UN in 2015. It also provided me with a measurement tool to understand what and how the SDG / ESG can be rated within a company.
